COURSE OVERVIEWS

Developed by the Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy (NNI) at The University of Arizona, the “Rebuilding Native Nations” distance-learning course series examines the critical governance and development challenges facing Native nations and surveys the breadth and diversity of Native nation-building efforts across Indian Country. Sharing lessons learned from more than two decades of community-based research by NNI and its sister organization the Harvard Project on American Indian Economic Development, it explores what is working, what isn’t, and why as Native nations work to reclaim control over their own affairs and create vibrant futures of their own design.
